I am having some trouble to change the default tmpdir from /var/tmp to another location, such as /scratch/tmp (a different hard drive). I try editing either /etc/pbs.conf or mom_priv/config, or both, but none of them works. My pbs.conf:
Delivers the error:
pbs_mom: Operation not permitted (1) in tmp_file_sec, Security violation “/scratch/tmp” resolves to “/scratch”
/opt/pbs/sbin/pbs_mom: Unable to configure temporary directory.
pbs_mom startup failed, exit 1 aborting.
sudo /etc/init.d/pbs restart
as stated in section 15.8.2 of the Admin Guide.
Could someone please help?
Thanks a lot.
